Keith Clark, the Army bugler who played "Taps" at president John F. Kennedy's funeral, is being remembered 50 years later with a ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, where he is buried. Clark, who retired to Port Charlotte almost two decades ago with his wife, Marjorie Clark, was 74 when he passed in 2002. He is seen here playing at JFK's grave a year after his assassination.
